2010-04-18 SHAKESPEARE'S BIRTHDAY PARTY (more...)
Hi Abs, I started dealing with the lighting after a Canadian firm specified the lighting (light pipe) which Lord Foster referred to as a "Blade of Light accross the Thames". The Electrical engineers wanted to change the spec' to a different firms kit & it was a nightmare to get our stuff on the project... I then became the project manager for the installation itself... The bridge always wobbled just with the force of the wind blowing up the Thames & it didn't take a rocket scientist to figure out there'd be problems when people actually started to use it ! I can't find a decent nightime video of the lighting, from either on the bridge or from the Thames, but it was a cool project to be involved with... I think the bridge is being used in the new Harry Potter trailer.
